I really like the use of this app on android and IOS platforms. On my desktop though, it is awful. Not to mention, it isn't available on the IOS desktop platform. None of the functions work, the only thing that you can use it for is to view photos. There is no other functionality to it. Would definitely recommend using a different platform if your audience are windows users.

Lacks a lot of features

Its typical of Windows Apps to lack a lot of feature. The videos don't play, only displays the > arrow instead. Most notifications are missed. Large Tile is not available, wide tile is the largest option. Layout is not great at all. Slow to load.

V3- it just keeps getting better! I stopped posting baby pictures on Facebook. They have to many ads. With 23Snaps, my family gets a clean and ad-free experience. Plus we love the privacy. V2- much needed update! Stories feature!! UI updates and bug fixes makes this app alot smoother and responsive 😊 Original review----- Works very well after the update! I've constantly been uploading video and pictures for family to see. You can also post status updates and weight/height of your child. It's a great way to share your child's growth and progress. Glad to see it make its way to the phone from the PC! Hope to see more features from other platforms be implemented into this Windows Phone app!

Great overall except some essential missing

Signed up with FB so when I got to my Surface, no SSO to continue. Had to go to site to reset password to continue. Lack of selecting multiple pictures is very frustrating. Otherwise, great product for sharing pictures with family.

I really like the idea of this company. Facebook for Windows phone has never been polished. The groups section has always been subpar within Facebook. This app make sharing with family feel much more private. Definitely has potential, just happy to see Windows phone support.

Doesn't work on Surface

I love the app on my iPhone but I can view videos on the Surface version... very disappointing, otherwise a great app.

Far from the iOS app

I've been using 23snaps for a while on the iPhone and iPad. I was stocked to find the app again in the windows store when I switched to a new Surface tablet. However the app is far from being as good here. Mostly, navigation is not intuitive and uploading photos is a pain. Most of the times, there will be a bug. There's a lot of catching up to do...

No video playback?!

The only reason why I use this is to privately share videos to family, but I can't play the videos on windows8. Photo quality is not bad.

Dynamic, privately shared photo album - fantastic!

Absolutely love this app. My own digital scrapbook for photos and videos, and very easy to share. The days of uploading pics and send a link via Shutterfly are over. Great job on this. Would love to see customizable albums soon.
